X065 Wazithwal' izono Yesu,

X065 Wazithwal' izono Yesu,

 / Behold the Saviour of Mankind

Samuel Wesley (Similar Sentiment)

1 Wazithwal' izono Yesu,

Zingezono zakho.

Walihlawl' ityala Yesu,

Lingetyala lakho.


1 Behold the Savior of mankind

nailed to the shameful tree;

how vast the love that him inclined

to bleed and die for thee!

2 Wawungumntu oneentsizi,

Ungemoni wena;

Laphalal' igazi lakho'

Uyingcwele wena.


2 Hark how he groans! while nature shakes,

and earth's strong pillars bend!

The temple's veil in sunder reads,

the solid marbles rend.

3 Iziphoso zethu zonke,

Zabalelwa kuwe;

Nezilandu zethu zonke,

Zabalelwa kuwe.


3 'This done! the precious ransom's paid!

"Receive my soul!" he cries;

see where he bows his sacred head!

He bows his head and dies!

4 Sixolelwa siphiliswa,

Ngezo ntlungu zakho;

Siyahlanzwa ezonweni,

Ngelogazi lakho. Amen.


4 But soon he'll break death's envious chain

and in full glory shine.

O Lamb of God, was ever pain,

was ever love like thine?
